Students conduct drive

Dibrugarh, Jan. 23: Over 200 students of Jokai High School today took part in a cleanliness drive under the aegis of the school’s eco club in Jokai, about 18km from here.

Its aim is to create awareness about the environment among residents and educate them on nature.

“We organised the drive to make the people of Jokai aware of their surroundings and the need to keep it clean. About 230 students took part in the campaign,” Ujjwal Baruah, in-charge of Jokai High School eco club, said.

An art competition was held on the theme — Love, Nature and its Preservation — where 50 students participated. Nakul Khound, co-coordinator of IRAB-KIRAB, an environmental NGO of Dibrugarh, said the step taken by the eco club is appreciable. The drive was also carried out inside Jokai Botanical Garden.

A campaign against non-biodegradable products was conducted by the students and teachers of the school at Saraighat, about 5km from the botanical garden.
